Any remaining typing, spelling and formatting problems will be highlighted and I will examine how your text presents itself in both hard, and electronic formats. This is the final opportunity to catch any errors before your work is presented for publishing. I am familiar with BSI correction markup and have completed the first of two SfEP proofreading courses. If you would like to use this service please send me a sample of the work to be proofread, your contact details, and a briefing of the work to be carried out. If you do not have a briefing, please complete this form and email it back to me with your sample. This can be completed in Adobe Reader.
Proofreading includes checks for:
- Spelling and grammar
- Illustrations and diagrams
- Headings, captions and footnotes
- Adherence to house style: US/UK English, ise/ize, abbreviations etc. Please provide explicit instructions with regard to house-style.
- That Links function
- Repeating phrases
- Detailed and properly presented feedback.
- Paragraph alignment
- Cover page
- Line spacing
In the case of academic work, I will need some more information. Please complete this form and I will be in touch.
Please allow at least a week for the completion of this service depending on the length of the manuscript.
